Rick Ross assassination attempt might have links to Gangster Disciples
Jan-30-2013 339 0


There is no shortage of suspects in Monday's assassination attempt on well-known rap star Rick Ross. And they all lead back to Chicago.

Ross survived a shooting ambush in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Monday morning.

The worst kept secret in the rap world has been a dispute between Ross and the Chicago-based Gangster Disciples. Ross was apparently targeted by gang leaders after he used some of their signs, symbols and logos without paying them the required fees.

Over the past few months, gang members have posted video death threats against the rapper on YouTube. Monday, a hit squad opened fire on Ross in South Florida.

There was a spray of gunfire just before daybreak on the silver Rolls Royce being driven by rapper Rick Ross, stage name for William L. Roberts.

"Nine or 10 shots, rapid fire," said a witness. "AK-47 or pretty large rifle, it was definitely a rifle."

Fort Lauderdale police tell the I-Team that they cannot confirm nor dismiss whether the allege threats to the rap star are legitimate but that detectives are examining the forensic evidence.

Despite all the bullets, rapper Ross, celebrating his 37th birthday Monday, was not hurt and neither was his girlfriend in the car, which crashed into an apartment.

Videos claiming to have been posted by Gangster Disciple members in cities across the U.S. all say that the rapper needs to pay the gang or he will be killed.

Authorities in South Florida say the motive for the attack is unclear.

Rapper Joe Budden's mom bailed him out of jail early Thursday after the rapper turned himself in to answer charges that he beat and robbed his ex-girlfriend.

The “Pump It Up” hip-hop star surrendered to cops at the 34th Precinct stationhouse in Inwood Wednesday, with his attorney in tow, at about 9 a.m., cops said.

He was arraigned late in the day on charges of assault, grand larceny and robbery in Manhattan criminal court but was released after his mother came to his rescue with $10,000 in cash for bail.

“It's good to be free,” Budden told the Daily News as he left the courthouse. He also took a parting shot at his accuser.

“I’ve been portrayed worse by better,” he said.

The rapper was ordered to sign an order of protection forbidding him from contacting his ex-girlfriend, who police said he assaulted on Aug. 18 after she posted a picture of herself with another man on Twitter.

On that day, an enraged Budden drove up to a restaurant near Nagle Ave. and Dyckman St. at 4:30 a.m., grabbed his ex‘s cell phone, pushed her in the head, twisted her arm and then choked her before slamming her head against the passenger-side window as he forced her into his car, according to the criminal complaint.

After driving back to the New Jersey home the two shared, Budden grabbed the woman‘s hair and dragged into their bedroom, where he punched her in the stomach, the court papers said.
He then said he needed to call a cab before he killed the woman, according to the complaint.

The beatdown has been compared to rapper Chris Brown's savage attack on megastar Rihanna in 2009.

Budden, 33, has mantained his innocence publicly on Twitter.

“Let this be a lesson to all … never steal a cell phone that’s in your name,” he tweeted. “Smh … Justice will be served.”

“I should’ve known that girl was trouble when she never heard of Prince,” he wrote earlier. “Neve (sic) trust a woman that never heard 'Purple Rain.' ”

In court, Budden’s lawyer, Nima Ameri, said the rapper's tweets, including those taunting the NYPD, were jokes.

Mathew Knowles is claiming Beyoncé and Jay Z's divorce rumors are all a bid at getting more bills, bills, bills.

The superstar singer's dad and former manager opened up about his daughter and son-in-law's supposed marital woes on the "Roula and Ryan" Houston radio show on 104.1 KRBE earlier this week.

"It's called a Jedi mind trick," he said. "The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of times."

The 63-year-old mastermind behind successful girl group Destiny's Child, for which Beyoncé was lead singer, hinted that controversies like the couple's rumors of divorce help "to ignite that tour."

Queen Bey and Hov's sold out "On the Run" tour has proven to be extremely successful for the already worldwide-known musical duo.

After video leaked of Solange Knowles, front, hitting Jay Z, behind her, during this Met Gala afterparty, Knowles’ record sales went up 200 percent, her father says.

Adding dissonance to their rather perfect love affair entices fans to see them on tour together in case this is the last of their romance.

"I know, because we've done this," Knowles told Radar Online. "From experience, there's a tour going on."

The radio hosts asked about Knowles' previous comments to Radar and asked whether the infamous elevator blowout between Jay and Beyoncé's younger sister, Solange, at a Met Gala afterparty in May was also a publicity stunt.

"All I know is the Jedi mind trick," he said coyly. "Everyone's talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange's album sales went up 200 percent!"

Talking about promotions, Knowles used the interview to push the notion about a possible Destiny's Child reunion tour.

"Folks don't know it, but I am still the manager of Destiny's Child," he said. "When you see Destiny's Child on TV and you see them doing songs together slowly, slowly — now they've done two, they were recently on TV — I don't know, it might be another Destiny's Child album coming."

Further building suspicion, Knowles added, "There might be this tour that makes history, Destiny's Child featuring Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle. Can you imagine what that would be like?"

Attempting to get through his cryptic comments, the Houston radio hosts asked Knowles to cough twice if this supposed historic tour will happen "in the next year." He coughed right away.

His statements leave a lot of questions as to how and when this could actually go down. Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland appeared to be in her final stages of pregnancy as she looked on proudly during Beyonce's nearly 16-minute MTV VMAs performance.

Meanwhile, Jay Z, with the couple's 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy in tow, took to the stage to present his wife with the Video Vanguard Award.

The image of the trio together on stage was beautiful, but left some wondering if this was once again a "Jedi mind trick."

BET has suspended a producer after a joke about Beyonce and Jay Z's daughter that aired Monday on the network's music video countdown show, "106 & Park."

A source at the network, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not allowed to discuss the matter publicly, said the producer was suspended after a remark about 2-year-old Blue Ivy's hair.

On Monday's show during a segment about Blue Ivy's hypothetical thoughts during Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, guest host Karrueche Tran said: "I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair." Blue Ivy joined her mother onstage at the VMAs.

Stephen Hill, BET's president of music programming and specials, publicly apologized on Twitter.

"Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child," Hill tweeted.

Hill also said the network privately apologized to Beyonce and Jay Z.

BET didn't immediately return an email seeking comment Wednesday.

Tran, who has dated singer Chris Brown on and off, tweeted Tuesday that she did not write the joke. She wrote: "Now y'all know I LOVE me some Beyonce and Blue Ivy!"

Hill also tweeted that it was not Tran's fault.

"We also apologize to her for putting her in that position," he wrote.

The IRS filed a tax lien against Vanessa Williams, saying the singer-actress owes the federal government $369,249 for her 2011 earnings.

The lien was filed at the New York City register office on August 13, 2014, according to a document on that website.

The publicist for Williams did not immediately respond Wednesday to requests for comment.

Williams, 51, was the first black Miss America, but her reign soon erupted into scandal when nude photos of her appeared in Penthouse magazine.

Her career soared in the aftermath, with music, television and Broadway performances that earned her Grammy, Emmy and Tony nominations.

A mother of four children, Williams lives in New York.

Cops have launched a manhunt for rapper Joe Budden, who is accused of assaulting and robbing his model ex-girlfriend in Washington Heights.

Police released a picture of Budden, 33, as they continued their search for the “Pump It Up” hip-hop star and one-time Def Jam recording artist in connection with the attack earlier this week.

Budden allegedly drove up to a restaurant near Nagle Ave. and Dyckman St. at 4:30 a.m. Sunday, grabbed his ex and forced her into his car.

As the two argued, Budden stole her cell phone and twisted her arm, officials said.

He then took her to his New Jersey home, where the attack allegedly continued.

His ex ultimately escaped and called police.

Friends of the victim told mediatakeout.com that Budden had slammed his ex-girlfriend’s head into the dashboard. The BEATDOWN has been compared to Chris Brown's savage attack on megastar Rihanna in 2009.

But cop sources said that, according to their paperwork, Budden did nothing more than twist the woman’s arm.

The rapper reportedly flew into a rage after seeing Instagram pictures of his ex-girlfriend clubbing with other men. The woman had broken up with Budden because he was “cheating and hooking up with strippers,” a friend told mediatakeout.com.

The wanted man is hiding in plain sight on social media: He fired off more than 15 tweets on Friday — claiming New Jersey cops had been in contact with him.

“Cops searched my house today cuz shorty told them I had guns here,” he wrote. “He said ‘wanna tell me why u have a bullet proof vest?’.. Lmao/smh.”

He then posted a picture of himself sitting on a street curb surrounded by three dogs with the words “I’m guarded ... Literally.”

“The lesson to be learned here is ... Leave the strippers & bartenders in the strip club … sounds so simple !” he also wrote.

Gunshots rang out at a pre-Video Music Awards party reportedly hosted by Chris Brown and singer Pia Mia in West Hollywood in the early morning hours on Sunday.

While the 25-year-old R&B singer is said to have been the intended target of shots fired at 1OAK around 1:30 a.m., it was music producer Marion (Suge) Knight who took the heat along with two other victims, one is said to be in critical condition, reports TMZ.

"Literally can't believe what I just witnessed," one attendee, Katie Clendon, tweeted after she was seemingly inside the club. "Someone tried to fire shots at Chris Brown at 1oak. Speechless."

Others thought Brown and fellow celeb attendee Justin Bieber were the targets.

"Me and @MOANNN sort (sic) refuge in a toilet cubicle as rifles targeted Chris brown & bieber outside. #usa," Chloe Lloyd, "Australia's Next Top Model" finalist, tweeted, adding, "Yeh mate you can't drink when you're 21 but own a gun and do drugs at 18 please. #usapolitics #joke."

The 49-year-old Death Row Records founder was reportedly taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital after being shot six times. The latest reports state Knight is in ICU, but is expected to recover after undergoing emergency surgery.
Earlier reports indicated Knight was shot twice, in the stomach and arm, a source told the gossip site.

"Prayers to all those who were harmed by this," Clendon later tweeted. "Honestly still in disbelief this happened."


The Game, born Jayceon Terrell Taylor, was reportedly denied entry into Chris Brown’s pre-VMAs party at 1OAK. But photos appear to show him at the party on Saturday night in Los Angeles.

The Game, born Jayceon Terrell Taylor, was reportedly denied entry into Chris Brown’s pre-VMAs party at 1OAK. But photos appear to show him at the party on Saturday night in Los Angeles.

Among the star-studded attendees was model Tyson Beckford, actor Robert Ri'chard, and Black Eyed Peas member Apl.de.ap, who all told TMZ they heard four shots fired inside the swanky hot spot. Rapper The Game was also said to be one of the celeb guests partying prior to MTV's big awards show taking place in Los Angeles Sunday night.

The Game is said to have tried to get into the party about an hour and a half before the shooting and was reportedly denied entry after having an altercation with security guards that turned into a full-on fight.

While the rapper, born Jayceon Terrell Taylor, supposedly left, his friends were said to have stayed behind. There is no evidence that The Game's earlier reported altercation at the nightclub had anything to do with the shots that rang out shortly after.

In fact, images that surfaced appear to show Game partying at Brown's fiesta, which contradict reports he was unable to gain entry.

Knight reportedly walked out of the club on his own accord and sat in a police car prior to being put in an ambulance and rushed to the hospital for treatment.

A suspected gunman was apprehended by police after they searched the club and questioned partygoers, reports the Daily Mail.

On high alert after the shooting, cops reportedly stood with guns drawn as the other clubgoers exited 1OAK.

"It's disappointing that we as a society can't have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes," Brown tweeted early Sunday morning. "Miss me with the bulls--t!!!"

A rep for Chris Brown has yet to respond to the Daily News' request for comment.

The 44-year-old singer's six-year marriage to the "America's Got Talent" host has reportedly hit the rocks, according to TMZ.

The couple are apparently "living apart" and have already gotten lawyers involved to negotiate property and custody agreements over their 3-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.

"Divorce is a done deal," the gossip site reported.

Their relationship allegedly suffered a big hit when Cannon,33, appeared on Big Boy's radio show in March and named Kim Kardashian as one of the celebrities he has bedded.

"That made Mariah insane and humiliated," sources told TMZ. "She tore into Nick for weeks."

Kardashian isn't the only thing that drove a wedge between the spouses: Carey has reportedly felt "abandoned" by Cannon because of his work schedule.

The "Always Be My Baby" songstress allegedly thought he was spending too much time away from her and their children.

"They have been living apart for a while. This is not all of a sudden. There have been issues between them for a while. They are not getting along," another source close to Carey told E! News.

"She wants to end it and it has been in the works for months, which is why her house in the Bahamas and the house in Bel-Air are on the market."

Nick Cannon, seen with Kim Kardashian in 2007, apparently caused a riff in his marriage when he bragged about having slept with the reality TV starlet.

Nick Cannon, seen with Kim Kardashian in 2007, apparently caused a riff in his marriage when he bragged about having slept with the reality TV starlet.

Carey and Cannon married on April 30, 2008, at the starlet's Bahamas estate and every year since, the duo made a pubic effort to renew their vows — except for this past April.

Hip-hop mogul Damon Dash has hit Hollywood director Lee Daniels with a $25 million lawsuit charging the filmmaker stiffed him on investments he made in his flicks.

Dash, who has blown through a $50 million fortune and is reported to be deeply in debt, claims Daniels owes him money on a half-dozen films, including “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” “Precious” and “The Paperboy.”

He also charged that Daniels cheated him out of executive producer credits on the movies.

“He never received money that Mr. Daniels promised him,” said Natraj Bhushan, Dash’s lawyer.

Bhushan said Dash pumped at least $2 million into Daniels’ films and got nothing in return despite the box-office success the movies generated. “The Butler” raked in an estimated $100 million, putting Daniels among the few African-American filmmakers to score such a triumph.

The lawyer said Daniels treated Dash’s generosity like a running tab at a bar, and that he repeatedly vowed to make good on the cash infusions.

Fed up with Daniels’ broken promises, Dash finally had no alternative but to take legal action and filed the suit Thursday in Manhattan Supreme Court, Bhushan said.

Although Dash did get producer credit on some of Daniels’ early films, like the 2004 flick “The Woodsman” starring Kevin Bacon and the 2005 crime thriller “Shadowboxer” starring Cuba Gooding and Helen Mirren, he says he was not compensated for the work.

Dash’s name is missing entirely from the roster of producers in the later films.

In addition to Daniels, Dash is also suing Simone Sheffield of Canyon Entertainment, who was a producer of “Shadowboxer.” He wants $1 million from her.

Daniels’ publicist declined to comment.

Dash, who made a fortune after founding Roc-A-fella Records with Jay Z — and then selling his share to the rapper — has been the target of a series of lawsuits in recent years for not paying his bills, including one from a woman who rented her Putnam County home to Dash for a year.

A warrant has been issued for rapper Wiz Khalifa's arrest after he skipped a court date on a marijuana possession charge in West Texas.

Online court records show the 26-year-old performer, whose real name is Cameron Thomaz, failed to appear for a scheduled Wednesday arraignment in an El Paso County misdemeanor court. So County Court-at-Law Judge Ricardo Herrera issued a bench warrant for Khalifa's arrest.

The case started May 25 when Khalifa was arrested at El Paso International Airport after airport security officers reported finding a small canister of marijuana on him.

Khalifa had been departing after appearing at a local music festival. Instead, he was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and was released after posting $300 bail.

Court records do not list an attorney.
